This one was one of the most satisfying museums I have ever visited for me! The building is great, I loved it in terms of architecture and the things that building had inside, were equally great and totally interesting.

We went there because we love natural sciences and we read that it is the 3rd natural history museum of the Germany. It is really beautiful because it has a lot of fossils and animals and you could look into every species of the world.

Visited on a Sunday during a busy family event day. Some of the exhibits were impressive, but the place felt dated and few signs are translated to English. But it was free and let us kill some time until the nearby restaurant opened.

Hi, to 99% i think to remember that we used the credit card because like to save the cash for dining or whatever else. But you can call them too or have the hotel find out for you. To be 100% sure. 👩
